One day ago, Deadpool 3 was finally listed as "in development" and is expected to hit theaters in 2022.
As Deadpool is famous for breaking the fourth wall and addressing things happening in the contemporary world around him, it is likely we will see some Joker jokes or references in the new film.

Joker, which hit theaters on October 4, 2019, has a 69% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
If Ryan Reynolds has anything to say about it, Deadpool 3 will beat it in every category possible.
